EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is a reply to a letter posted about two roads in Clarendon County allegedly being impassable.

I live on a connecting road, Bream Avenue. It is just as bad.
I have signed two petitions to try and get the county to address the issue. Both were ignored. I have called and talked to the person in charge, (and) I was told that these streets are not on the list of county roads to be paved in the “foreseeable future.”
When the county does come out, all they do is scrape the road to try and level … Read the rest

Reader disagrees with NFL protests

Posted on October 1, 2017 5:05 pm by Submitted by Reader

I think their behavior is totally disrespectful and self-centered.
If they want to protest, they should do it on their own time. I don’t know of any businesses that would put up with employees acting this way during “company time.”
The NFL regulations clearly ban this sort of behavior, yet they are condoning it and encouraging it.
Plenty of players have tried to use their time in a game to bring attention to causes and have been fined for it.
The NFL is not behaving with consistency, and that in itself is unfair. Yet, that’s what these players say they … Read the rest

He just completed his fourth year as head coach of the varsity Swampcats baseball team by taking his players to their second State Championship title in two years.
“It’s challenging to go back-to-back,” said Athletic Director Robbie Briggs. “When you’re the defending champion, there’s a target on your back. Everyone wants to unseat the reigning State Champs.”
